    not over clocked

    I would like to know what versin of windows 7 to use for best results in gaming.
    I have home premium 32 bit genuine.
    currently using 7 ultimate 64 bit with the hard drives in a raid spanning setup.
    I just think that the ultimate might be to much for gaming as the pc does not get used for anything apart from movies and games.
    I built this pc over a year ago.

    The version doesnt matter so much, you just want to make sure its 64 bit of w/e version you're using so you can use more than 3gbs of ram.

    I agree, the version really won't matter much at all (other then 64 bit). If you are really concerned with OS memory or processor usage take a look at this link for what services you can safely disable:
